Dear all,

Today sees the 13th release of the W3C Markup Validation service since,
well, since we started making formal releases for what was then known as
the HTML Validator. 

online http://validator.w3.org/
documentation http://validator.w3.org/docs/
download http://validator.w3.org/source/

0.8.2 is mostly a maintenance version, with a number of bug fixes, a big
performance fix, and a few UI improvements for accessibility and usability. 
It is now, among other things, easier to:
* revalidate a document, even in the direct input or file upload modes
* use the validator with a screen reader
* validate standalone SVG documents
* validate a specific representation of a content-negotiated resource
These changes and more are listed in the validator's news page:

Many thanks to those who have helped with this release, by reporting  
bugs, suggesting fixes or documentation tweaks, or provided patches.
Special thanks to Brett Bieber, who contributed many patches for this 
release.
